There was some show when someone (Phil? Bob?) announces that the next tune they will be playing (ship of fools) is in the key of b flat, but I can't remember what f-ing show it was! It was definitely some '74 thing but can someone help me out?

Ha! I know you all think I just make this shit up, but LiA can confirm that in my fav early 67 show of CREAM, Eric states quite clearly, prior to track 2, "The next one I play...uh...on my strap alone!" (presumably some problem with quitar causes that quip on the fly), AND then Ginger follows with "...in the key of E flat...".

Sorry, no help on the DEAD but what a coincidence, eh? "B", "E", it sounds the same to me...

I seem to remember you are our Cream officionado. Do you have 10-15-67? Download high quality mp3 here. The site Ring posted talking about Catfish John and a JGB show today.

Figured so, but just in case. I'm a little weary of posting blog sites with music so that's why I went back a few months to tag you. Don't want to call attention to the blog to get it shut down or disrupt the good thing we have going on the Archive.

Happy New Year.

"B" "E" "W" and red grenadine

Wait a minute...what other color can grenadine be?

It can be applied to any fruit based liquor and simple syrup . So technically it could be a different color , but I have only seen red .

Bill , I have been wanting to thank-you for your posts at the end of September . It was very compassionate of you .
Indeed . Some things one must simply accept .
I won't soon forget your kind-hearted words . Thanks .

You're quite welcome. I'm glad my thoughts on the subject were helpful. Actually, looking back, I feel they had a bit of a defeatist tone.

Maybe , Bill . But you know what I felt I had to do . Your warning taken with great weight , regarding your past unsuccessful attempt(s) . In this place where such sentiment can be carelessly discarded or mocked it was a brave move on your part to speak so directly and frankly . I admire that . And it helped me .
As I've been going through my days you can not believe how many Old Irish Blessings I've seen on refrigerators , dashboards , one bumper sticker . It's like when you are thinking of buying a specific kind of car and suddenly you see it everywhere .

Doesn't it depend on which area of Grenada it's made in?

grenadine - from the French 'grenade' meaning pomegranate. So far as I know pomegranates are not grown in Grenada.
